Archelon are giant sea turtles, hunted by the Azcans for their eggs and meat and tough, leathery shells. They are found all over the Hollow World in lakes and oceans, but in Azcan lands they notably live in Lake Chitlaloc. They stay in the water except to breed on sandy beaches. They usually donít deliberately attack humans but may accidentally sink small boats. Archelons are unlikely to have treasure unless they swallowed something.
